Mountain lion believed to have killed livestock

Animals found dead near Half Moon Bay

State fish and game officials believe a mountain lion is responsible for killing several sheep and goats overnight near Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County emergency officials said Tuesday.

The animals were found dead Tuesday morning (July 26) in the area of 1500 Purisima Creek Road, just south of Half Moon Bay.

They were last seen alive at about 7 p.m. Monday, officials said.

Wildlife officials from the Department of Fish and Game examined the animals and determined that they had likely been killed by a mountain lion.

Anyone who encounters a mountain lion is advised to pick up children, face the animal, make noise, and try to look bigger by waving arms and throwing rocks, emergency officials said.
